Sydney Australia and Bondi Beach Life Savers Club
Looking down at the waves of Bondi Beach crashing into the pools of the Life Savers Cub reminds us that the sea can be a dangerous place to enjoy both because of the power of the surf and because of sharks occasionally breaching the safety nets in the bay.
In 1907 the Life Savers Club was established to train professional life savers to patrol the increasingly popular Bondi Beach in Waverley County.
The Club is still there, the pools are still used to train Life Savers and graduates continue to patrol the beaches wearing the iconic red and yellow caps.
The club admits visitors providing they sign in and the fine-dining restaurant serves the most delicious fish and chips in the world.
